A Russian daredevil has died in front of his friend’s eyes while trying to take an exciting picture on a railroad bridge in the Moscow Region. He was apparently influenced by the social media craze of posting extreme stunts online to impress peers.
The two 16-year-old friends, Slava Taranov and Albert Latypov, ignored “high voltage” danger signs and climbed several meters on to the railroad bridge to take pictures to post on Russia’s most popular social network site VKontakte (In Contact) to astonish their friends.
The teenagers thought the bridge was the most “appropriate place for stunning pictures”, Latypov told LifeNews. However, the boys’ escapade ended in horrific tragedy.
